Characters:Den Leader, any number of Cub Scouts with presents.

Setting: Den Leader is standing on stage.  If desired, a decorated Christmas tree may be used as backdrop. Boys enter one at a time.

First boy:Merry Christmas, Mrs. ____________. I brought you something.  (Hands her a box.)

Den Leader:That's very nice, Bill, but there was no need....

Second Boy:Hi, Mrs. ______________, look at the present I brought you.  (Hands her a bigger box.)

Den Leader:Well, Bob.....

Third Boy:(Rushes in)  Here's a present, Mrs.  ________________. Boy, it's heavy!

Den Leader:Well, Tom ... what a surprise.  You really didn't have to...

Fourth Boy:(Rushes in carrying box almost too large to handle)  Look what I have!  Boy, are you going to like it!

Den Leader:Oh dear!  Boys...

Fifth Boy:(Pushing box across floor...too heavy to carry)  Here's a Christmas gift from me, Mrs. __________  It's really neat!

Den Leader:My Godness...

Sixth Boy:(Pulling a wagon on which is a box much too large to carry.)  Wait till you see this one!  I really spent a lot of money!

Den Leader:Boys, you are all very kind.  But I think we should have a talk about all this.  Where's Jim?

First Boy:He's coming.  I don't know what is taking him so long.  He doesn't have a very big gift.  In fact, I didn't see him carrying anything.

Second Boy:Here he is now. (Jim enters.)

Jim:Sorry I'm late for the meeting, Mrs. _______.  I stayed after school to finish your Christmas present.

Third Boy:I don't see a present.  Look at all the BIG presents we brought.  I can't even see yours.  (Smirks.)

Jim:Mine isn't very large, Mrs. ________, but I hope you'll like it. It's a poem.

All:What a present!  (Lots of Laughing.)

Den Leader:May I see it, Jim.  (He hands her the paper and she reads:)

I have no money, so I guess I'm poor

But I have friends, that is for sure.

I have no money so I couldn't buy

The things I'd like, though Christmas is nigh.

I have no money, but I don't care

Cause I have you, with whom to share

A happy Christmas Season.

I have no money, so I was sad;

But I looked around, and I was glad.

The things I have are worth a lot;

Some kids don't have the things I got.

I have my dad, I have my mom,

I have my dog--he loves me some.

And in my den I've learned to share.

Not things or money, but love and care.

For each of you I wish as much,

That you'll each know the work of such,

As family, friends and all the things
